Admitting my Weakness

Admitting my Weakness

A Poem by Elisa

A piece to vent

I'm not strong enough to hold you up
To listen to everything wrong with you
Or your day
Or your life

I'm not strong enough to be there
When every day's "not your day".
I don't have a white horse
I have to run on foot

I am no longer strong enough
To slay your monsters for you
For every head I chop off
You scream at two more

I'm not strong enough to carry you
When you won't take another step
Maybe I'm more selfish now
I'm truly sorry for that

What weakens me the most
Is all the years we've shared.
That won't let me leave you behind
That won't let me move on
That won't let me finish this poem
Because you've fallen yet again.

Author's Note

It's hard for me to write this about someone I really care about, but I can't apologize for how I feel. Thank you so much for stopping by, and have a greay day!

At first I thought, well that's not very nice to abandon a friend in time of need. But as the story unfolded, I can absolutely empathize with the protagonist. Sometimes we absolutely have to be selfish for our own sake and wellbeing, especially when the other person isn't very sympathetic of our feelings.

You shouldn't have to apologize how you feel. This is a lovely piece if I do say so myself. Keep up the good work.

Your welcome ~
No need to feel the need to apologize for sharing truth when it is shared without malice.
A great vent and a fine bit of inspiration, dear poet.
